    Being a novice fisherman myself, I can only say that is the most beautiful photography I have seen. The display flies are incredible. Obviously you are multi-talented!

    Great to see the Gary LaFontaine patterns shown and explained. I re-read Fly Fishing Mountain Lakes but the book had no photos of the patterns. As a veteran steam fisherman but novice lake fisherman, I am very excited to try these patters on my local lakes this upcoming season.

    Hi John,
    Good luck on your lake fishing. Fly Fishing Mountain Lakes is a favorite read…reading Gary’s adventures made me want to build a Slough Pig of my own! I bet you will find any number of his patterns that will serve you well on stillwaters. Thanks for stopping by and commenting. -Monte

    Wow, some great visuals here for the novice classic tyer (me), giving a great impression of how finished flies should look. Thanks for sharing these images.
